pumpkin and feta muffins

my weekend was for cooking lots of yummy things and freezing them for lunched this week. these muffins are fabulous and full of good stuff :)

2 cups diced pumpkin
2 Tbsp oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1 large handful baby spinach leaves, chopped
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
3 Tbsp sunflower seeds
¾ cup grated parmesan cheese
100g feta cheese, cubed
2 tsp wholegrain mustard
2 eggs
¾ cup milk
2 cups plain flour*
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 200°C. Place pumpkin in roasting pan, sprinkle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through and slightly mushy.
Transfer cooked pumpkin to a large mixing bowl, add spinach, parsley, sunflower seeds, parmesan, feta and mustard. Mix through. In a separate bowl, beat eggs and milk together and add to pumpkin mix. Sift flour and baking powder into the mixture, add salt and pepper and fold through, being careful not to over mix.
Spoon mixture into a greased 12 hole muffin tray and bake at 200°C for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.

*i substituted wholemeal flour for white and added chia seeds before baking

Happy Baking :)
